Energy004 Energy Conservation Funding - Submitted

Posted by Meredith Moore on April 7, 2020

The Energy SWATeam made the following recommendation on 4/3/2020: 

We recommend $10M per year (scalable) of funding for the next 5 years to implement critical projects that work in concert with energy performance contracts (EPC) and/or energy focused capital projects. EPC contracts are fulfilled by specialized, accredited firms known as energy service companies. The university uses EPCs to manage complex projects targeting facilities with high energy use, such as laboratories, maximizing energy efficiency and addressing sizable volumes of deferred maintenance issues along the way. The campus backlog on deferred maintenance is approaching $1 billion.

Attached is the SWATeam recommendation Energy004 Energy Conservation Funding with comments from the Energy SWATeam.
